Jason Raynard Peters was born January 22, 1982 in Queen City, Texas. He is currently the offensive tackle for the Philadelphia Eagles. While attending the University of Arkansas, Peters played for the Arkansas Razorbacks football team. Originally recruited as a defensive tackle, he spent his freshman campaign as a reserve defensive lineman. He was then moved to the tight end spot, where he caught four passes for 37 yards as a sophomore. In his junior year, Peters registered 21 catches for 218 yards and four touchdowns, which earned him a second-team All-SEC selection.
Peters was projected as an early fourth round pick by Sports Illustrated, but eventually went undrafted. He was picked up by the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted rookie free agent in April 2004. He was cut then re-signed to the Bills' practice squad, and then was signed to the active roster on November 12, 2004. At the beginning of the 2008 offseason Peters was unhappy with his contract and did not report to any of the Bills offseason workouts including the teams' mandatory minicamps. The Bills traded the unhappy Pro Bowler to the Philadelphia Eagles on April 17, 2009 with the Eagles offering a six-year contract for $60 million. And on February 26, 2014, Peters signed a new 5-year deal worth $51.3 million with the Eagles.
